Loving Enough To Let Go

Loving someone enough to let go is probably one of the toughest decisions you will ever have to make in your lifetime. Your first instinct is to try to fix everything for them, and clean up the mess they have made of their life. This is only natural, and don't beat yourself up over it. At some point in our lives we have all had friends, family or even colleagues who have inflicted injury upon themselves and their careers by making foolish choices driven by addiction, and/or the mental illness that twists the mind with self injurious behaviour.

Until the afflicted person loses damn near everything, including themselves, they will not get any help. You will only be hindering their recovery by placing a stamp of approval on every outrageous act they perform associated with their problem. Walking away, and detaching with love is the only answer.

Sometimes people truly have lose everything to win.
